The School of Art and Design in VPA offers programs that will challenge you to think critically and grow creatively and also encourages you to explore the many opportunities available within Syracuse University. Our students not only work hard in their studios and classrooms, but also collaborate with others across campus and around the world. We hope you will imagine yourself as part of VPA and apply to the School of Art and Design.

A portfolio is required for most programs in the School of Art and Design. Students are responsible for submitting their portfolio in person or online.

PLEASE NOTE:  The Common Application has recently integrated with SlideRoom for online submission of portfolios.  Our Common Application form refers to the portfolio as the "Arts Supplement."  By checking "yes" when asked if you wish to submit an "Arts Supplement" you will be directed to SlideRoom and your submission will be linked to your application
